Yesterday evening I travelled to Munich to watch La Bohème in the cinema. And I can tell you all the film is absolutely fantastic !!! The sceneries are made so lovely and they are so "real" just like the costumes. Anna and Rolando are great actors ! They are playing Mimì and Rodolfo with such a conviction and feelings. Another praise goes to Nicole Cabel as Musetta, George von Bergen as Marcello, Adrin Eröd as Schaunard and Vitalij Kowaljow as Colline (and sure to all the others who make this film to what it is). They are the best friends/acting collueges which Rodolfo/Rolando could have ! All to the fore Nicole Cabel, she acts really, really great ! Like she acts in Musetta's waltz is fantastic. The story is full of tragedy but it doesn't forget to give the audience also a "piece of fun". I love the scene in act IV when Rodolfo and his friends are fighting and having a good time, you can really see the fun they had in their eyes ! Rolando can really show his clownish core. The most "strongest" scene was the dieing of Mimì, I have to cry a lot during the film, but that was the time a have cried waterfalls...it is so heardbreaking if Rolando/Rodolfo crys the last words "Mimì, Mimì" into the night...the last picture you see is top view the death Mimì lying on Rodolfo's bed completely alone in the empty room...I think could still telling on and on =) There is so much talking and telling about ! But I don't want to antendate to much ^^ I hope you all will be able soon to watch Bohème in cinema or DVD !
(I know that I actually don't have any rights on the pictures, but please don't post them anywhere ! I really needed a long time to create them and they are made with all my love for them both, so please respect this. You can of course save them for your personal gallery if you want. Thanks)
Anna Netrebko & Rolando Villazón - World's greatest opera couple
Anna Netrebko & Rolando Villazón - Welcome back on stage "Traumpaar"
Anna and Rolando are my absolutely favorite couple in opera ! There's such a special chemistry between them. I decided to make a blog devoted to Anna AND Rolando and not even one about Anna OR Rolando. I hope you will like my blog. Constructional animadversion is desired and I am thankful for all suggestions !
